I Miss You!

As we push through these difficult times, I realize now more than ever, how important it is to maintain some sort of regularity. For me this is super important as it keeps things in perspective and creates a pathway to build a way back to a kind of normal. Otherwise the alternative can be grim.

While many of us have been lucky to be involved or enrolled in the Salimpour Institute, some of us have been taking or giving online classes, or both. This is so great! I am beyond thankful we have the technical ability to stay connected and keep training in this way. If you have not, I welcome you to join us!

My Zoom classes were paused for Fall and Spring semesters, but we are back! I miss seeing all your faces.
